Now don’t be salty!-)
Well talking about it stirs my memory – I picked it up from a French work – “la troupe” – Not sure if it is precisely NCOs and men in French usage, but that seemed to be the context.
Sigh, all the alternatives are just as wordy as “NCOs and men”, but I’d like a distinct term for better clarity.
